Street Artists or Art Markets

Traveling to Venice in mid-September and wondered if there are any local street artists who gather in any particular areas ( or markets) and what day of week/time ?. I am not looking for portraits but "outsider art" contemporary paintings/drawings or hand-made crafts like ceramics/glass ? If not, is there a gallery or shop that showcases the work, for sale, of local upcoming artists ?

Venice is full of shops selling Murano or Murano-like glass items. Just check they have Murano stickers as there is a lot of glass on sale in Venice which is not Murano but made somewhere in the Far East

Thanks, not worried about locating Murano glass, curious to find somewhere where local street artists sell original art work, outside of a gallery. Are there any weekend locations where artists gather ( like in Florence, Rome ) ? Looking for paintings or ceramics...

There are always artists selling their painting along the waterfront at St Mark's, The work is of very variable quality.
